Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

BROAGER - Denmark's Tentoma has launched a new version for its RoRo StretchPack packaging machine, which enables the automatic insertion of core plugs in nonwoven rolls.

The RoRo StretchPack packaging machinery can be used for the horizontal packaging of rolls in a seamless tubular stretch film, providing 100% waterproof and uniformed packaging.

Following requests from clients to include a core plug applicator in the packaging process, the new system can insert core plugs in rolls with diameters up to 1400 mm. The diameter of each roll is measured automatically to ensure that the core plug is centred. The applicator has a magazine for 100+ core plugs which means customers can take advantage of the high capacity from a fully automated packaging line without any bottlenecks.

As well as packaging quality, the RoRo StretchPack is also said to provide a more sustainable packaging solutions. The RoRo StretchPack also stretches the film while packaging, which means users can avoid excessive use of film.

Customers have seen a reduction in film consumption by 25 - 60% compared to conventional stretch film wrapping and heat shrink packaging, Tentoma says, noting that the energy-consuming heat shrink process is also removed from the packaging line with the system packing and sealing in one single operation.

RoRo StretchPack is based on well-proven technology for vertical stretch hood packaging of pallets. Tentoma says it has refined the technology, so it also can be utilized horizontally integrated into a highly productive production line.
